It is hard to believe how much detail there can be in one small brooch. There are 37 raindrops around the edge. There are 37 1mm x 3mm tear drop shaped turquoise stones on the first row of turquoise. There are 26 snake eye turquoise stones in the second row. There are 20 .5mm x 2mm tear drop turquoise stones in the third row and 10 snake eye turquoise stones in the fourth row bordering the 8mm x 5mm oval turquoise center stone. All 94 turquoise stones are set into a fine sawtooth bezel and in between each row is a very fine twisted wire border. The stones range in color from light blue to every shade of green. . The Zuni artist that made this pin put so much time and talent into the making of this piece I believe it's existence is a rare and wondrous thing! The effect is a statement of elegance, made by a master silversmith.
